Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Head of Church of England, refuses to say being gay is sin.



So good to see this. It gives me hope in Christianity, for real understanding of the Bible and actual love shown.

I am so sick of seeing and hearing abuse being hurled around by church people. I am so sick of the hypocrisy, abuse of the Bible, judgment and abuse being expressed, and then these issues projected onto others.

Every time a church person states being gay is sinful… they are in fact the ones committing sin. And many have no conscience, no remorse and no empathy in the process.

And people wonder why I say many churches are breeding grounds for narcissists and sociopaths.

My answer to that – take a look at their issues and how much harm they cause others – and how little conscience they have. Look at how they cherry pick Bible verses and intentionally interpret them literally. See how they use the Bible for abuse, intolerance, and harm. Then consider what personality disordered traits they have to enable them to do this. And how much psychological, emotional and spiritual harm they cause. See the hypocrisy. And how little they care.

So praise God for this man – Justin Welby – hopefully changing a few minds and hearts, in preaching what should be preached.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle.

  1. Congrats to Rev. Welby, Bishop of Canterbury!!

    This is my stance on the subject:

    1. Christianity is supposed to be about compassion, tolerance and inclusion, not exclusion. And, BTW, about the “Way of the Spirit,” not so much about church buildings and “Creeds.”

    2. For many of us, we never do find EVEN ONE person, with whom we find compatibility and commonality…and even the magic of love, and if/when we do, it is arguably a great boon and blessing.

    3. Human beings, in my view, are Most of All, spiritual beings, and our outward appearance and physical structure are decidedly of secondary import. Heck, I’ve known dogs and cats who are better human beings than many people on the planet these days.

    4. What two consenting adults do in the privacy of their homes (with no resulting psych. of physical injury or commission of felonies–like counterfeiting) is their business.

    5. Much of Christianity is WAY behind the times, in terms of realistic (and compas-sionate) policies and practice. In my early years, I was raised a RC, and there is NO WAY today that I would let the Church dictate my behavior related to such things as birth control, early term termination of pregnancy, or the question of with whom I want to live or marry. The Church–in many ways–is a “dinosaur,” and educated adults do NOT let their lives be dictated by dinosaurs…or “fuddy-duddy” Church Fathers.

    • My stance is that the Bible has been wrongly interpreted about whether being LBGTIQ is ‘sin’.
      When context is applied, it is actually only older men having sex with adolescent boys that is sinful and I agree, paedophilia is abhorrent.
      But, no-where is the Bible does is state that being gay is sin. Not when correct context is applied.
